Ethics approval and consent to participate
: This study was approved by the Institutional Review Boards at Fox Chase Cancer Center (Protocol 18-1025) and Duke University Health System (Protocol Pro00100404). Informed consent will be obtained by all study participants. Consent elements are standard for behavioral intervention trials, with several exceptions: (1) consent forms make the distinction between patients and partners for medical records data, in that patient medical record data are accessed for patients’ medical characteristics whereas this is not done for partners in the trial; (2) sessions are audio recorded and the consent form stipulates this as necessary for participation. No biological specimens are collected as part of this protocol and as such no consent is necessary for the use of biological specimens. Consent is not obtained to use data in ancillary studies.
